Bellisima is a 2.5 year old, 35 lb. spayed female in Waddington, NY.

Bellisima (Bell) is 2-1/2 years old. I have had her since she was 6 week old. She is an absolute delight. She has a great personality and as far as i can see none of the less desired traits of an ACD (nipping, biting, crazy energy).

Very well trained. House trained at 10 weeks, heels off leash, Instant recall, Asks before entering door, understands about 20 words. Very affectionate and very obedient. Not high energy. Does not bark or only barks when she needs you to do something like let her out or to bring something to your attention.


Understands 1 - 2 - 3 like a toddler. If she does not do what you want, say  ONE in a menacing voice she will instantly stop. Go to 2 if necessary. I've never gone to 3. Not allowed on furniture unless invited. Non reactive to other dogs on or off leash. No dietary restrictions. Eats normal dried dog food (Rachel Ray Nutrish).


Does not like being petted if she does not know you and will nip fingers. Does not nip or bite otherwise. Loves to play go find (hiding objects around the house). I tie her to my e-bike (with special leash made for it) and she runs 5 - 7 miles. So she never needs nails clipped. Is trained on the wireless fence but never leaves the yard even without it. I've never had a self cleaning dog, she stays clean without intervention most of the time. 

The only reason I am looking at rehoming is that I am moving overseas for retirement and will be travelling for a couple of years.
